An Exciting Weekend {Read in sarcastic tone}

So last week the bronchitis came back with a vengeance.  I should have been well.  I had taken my z-pack, used the inhaler and consumed the nasty cough syrup.  But I wasn't better.  On Wednesday afternoon, I realized I was on the downhill slide again, so I called up the doctor and got another round of medicine.

For whatever reason, this new medicine made me feel bad (or else I had a touch of the stomach bug too, which is entirely possible as well).  Anyway, I had a pretty low key weekend.

My cousin Gracie was in a musical called "Into the Woods".  She had a big role...Cinderella, so I had to go see her.  I went on Friday night.  She was so great!  They said no pics, but I caught a couple at the end...
Dark + Action = Blurry!

This was the 2nd of their 5 shows this weekend!

Here she is after arriving back at home (complete with some Cinderella make-up smudges on her face)...

My other cousin Maddie went to see it too. She brought a friend.  Please explain to me how it is that parents don't drown girls between the ages of 10-18?  I cannot tell you how many times my uncle and I said, "Inside voices!", "Girls!  Calm down!".  Once we dropped her friend off, things got a bit calmer, and we went for ice cream...



Then my weekend got real exciting.  I slept, watched DVR'd television, napped, coughed, took medicine, patted Lola, and read.  What did I read?  Something light and fluffy to get me through my illness?



Yep,  i read about the hunt for, and killing of, Osama bin Laden.  In my defense, it's a great book!  It was hard to put down. 

Luckily, I'm on the road to recovery and I think I'm finally getting better.  After 3 weeks of bronchitis, Lord I hope I'm getting better!

I'm glad you are finally feeling better. It sounded like you needed a weekend of doing nothing super exciting! Hope you keep getting better.

Oh man I hope you are feeling better..I hate being sick. Looks like fun at the play. Oh and I agree with your tweenie comment...I will be sad when Emery gets to that age!

Hope your week is better than your weekend if that is possible.

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
